and i agree with that. i have five children myself, but i also want to be able to take action so that this won't happen. three of my children are going to be going to elementary school on monday so we need to take some action and as a police officer, i can tell you what needs to be done is these gun-free school zones, that needs to be repealed. we have to have protection there and we have to have the ability for teachers and you know, people on the campuses to be able to defend themselves and to protect these young children. >> rick: so what you're talking about having someone armed and trained inside every school around the country in the event of something like this happening. >> i'm not talking about necessarily hiring or having a police state, but talking about allowing teachers and, you know, other personnel that work at the school to have the ability to have a weapon. if that principal, and i know it's a very tragic incident, but if that principal had a weapon. there have been a chance to save her own life, but we need to take this notion of, you know, not taking action now

tes tantntestant the reality when you look at the republican actions in particular, and the republican actions are polling 20% approval and the president is polling 50% approval, but the 20% approval is about the action on the cliff and not how they play in their individual districts. so when you travel around the country, and i have been to e tea party country in arizona, et cetera, there is a huge incentive for some of the more junior members of congress to stand their ground. it doesn't have to do with the fiscal math of the country, but it has to do with the electoral math of the home districts. >> and i think that she has put the finger on the thing that we are missing when we taub abolk this, because we act as if congress governs at a body with national interests and held accountable to national constituencies, but no, if it is game theory, each one of them is facing a different payoff structure in their own home constituen constituency. >> and it is skewed. first of all the tea party a minority, but the way that the republicans control the state governmentships and the state leg
